Shoulder Pain – Rotator Cuff Syndrome

cuff-musclesRotator cuff syndrome is a fairly common shoulder condition. Your shoulder is a relatively unstable ball and socket joint designed to allow for maximum range of motion. This large range of motion depends upon the coordination of movement by a group or cuff of muscles (rotator cuff). Any imbalance or miscoordination of this muscles can cause them to get irritated and even lead to a tear on one or more of them.
